I have used Skype once or twice with my roommate to talk to our friends that no longer live Houston with us. It is a great way to stay connected with each other and keep update. Many friends of mine Skype with relatives and friends when traveling abroad. I think it would be really informative and interesting to Skype with another middle school math class. I have a friend that teaches 8th grade math and we would like to have our students Skype with one another using the Ipads and Netbook. We could Skype to quiz one another using multiplication facts and move on to fractions and decimals as the year goes on. I think with good modeling and support the students will be able to master the world of Skype with ease and excitement.
